Are hair curlers worth it? We have found that a flat iron will actually hold the curls much, much longer. As a matter of fact, they could last until the following morning even after going to bed with them. The curly iron only held the wavy look for up to an hour or so and on top of that had to use a lot of product in the hair which for one is never a good idea if you wish to keep your hair as natural looking as possible. So, do give the flat iron a try if you wish to go curly. We believe you won’t be disappointed.

There are a lot of videos out there telling you the “how-to” however, not all work in real life and in practice. So, we reckon this could be a new way of creating curls.

Curling your hair can have a significant look overhaul, however, your hair will end up looking sorter. So, to maintain a long hair appearance, it is best to only curl the last 4-5 inches of your hair instead of near the roots. Again, this all depends on how long your hair is exactly.

For this technique, a one-inch flat iron is required – no bigger no smaller that’s the trick to getting things right in the first place. So before attempting anything on this top 10, you must make sure to have the correct tools to get to the wow factor. The wider flat iron gives you larger, wider curls creating a lot of volumes. If you wish to create a larger, more voluminous look, try to take wider larger sections to create a much loose look. If you were to take a smaller section, this will create a tighter curl pattern. We would advise you to try both, and see which one suits you best.
